Conducting weird scientific experiments, crazed Dr. James Brewster (Bela Lugosi), aided by his colleague Dr. Randall (Henry Hall), has managed to transform himself into a hairy, stooped-over ape-man. Desperately seeking a cure, Brewster believes only an injection of recently-drawn human spinal fluid will prove effective. With Randall refusing to help him, it falls to Brewster and his captive gorilla to find appropriate donors

How can you consider it a comedy? I'd rather watch this, The Giant Leeches, The Giant Gila Monster or any b-horror/scifi movie from those days than I would from the craphole stuff they put out today! FIVE STARS BABY!
Sci-Fi? Horror? No! It is a comedy, sometimes intended to be, sometimes unintentionally, but it works. I liked it.

I've seen worse Lugosi flicks. Scared to Death comes to mind. This was fun to riff while watching, since there're plenty of scenes needing ridicule and not an excess of dialog. The story follows the standard mad scientist as victim of his own work desperately seeking relief, i.e., Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, etc.
